Google Book Search Now Finds Magazines!

This just announced on the Google Blog:

“Today, we’re announcing an initiative to help bring more magazine archives and current magazines online, partnering with publishers to begin digitizing millions of articles from titles as diverse as New York Magazine, Popular Mechanics, and Ebony.

For years, we’ve worked to make as much information as possible accessible online, whether that information comes from books, newspapers, or images. We think that bringing more magazines online is one more important step toward our long-standing goal of providing access to all the world’s information.”

In these tight budgetary time, my first thought is a question: will libraries save any money because of this?  I only hope so.
